What Melinda would like to know about your dog

I'll want to know what your dog's favorite things are. Where does he usually sleep? What toys/games does he enjoy? Does he have a training history? How much exercise, and what type, does he usually get? It's imperative that he gets along with other dogs as I have three.

About Melinda's Home

When Melinda watches your pet

Dogs in my home have full access to the home including furniture. They will go outside as needed with extended outdoor playtime in good weather. Does your dog love balls? My yard is great for ball play. Think your dog would like to try agility? I can do that! Does your dog enjoy running and playing with other dogs? My three are happy to oblige!
